"An important contribution to the contemporary conversation about the relationship between doctrine, and especially the doctrine of the ancient church, and ecclesial life. Each of the chapters demonstrates the relevance of orthodoxy and of the Nicene Creed for the church today, and the structure of the book helps the reader to see that relevance for many aspects of the contemporary church. . . . This reader highly recommends Evangelicals and Nicene Faith. It accomplishes its goal of demonstrating the relevance of the Nicene Creed for the contemporary church. Each chapter is well worth the read."
Southeastern Theological Review
"All sixteen contributors to this volume are excellent scholars who have crafted thoughtful articles from diverse perspectives within evangelicalism. . . . This volume affords a rich variety of perspectives on how the evangelical church can maintain fidelity to the ancient creeds of the church. This is recommended reading for every thoughtful Christian."
Catholic Books Review
"The book is dedicated to the memory of Jaroslav Pelikan and concludes with a tribute to him. The volume will appeal to like-minded readers who appreciate Pelikan's historical insights, intellectual curiosity, and moral imagination, sparkling with a variety of genres coming from a diversity of specialties. . . . A stimulating conversation starter addressing patristic tradition and contemporary Evangelicalism."
"A book that helps Bible-loving Evangelicals to rediscover the God-honoring and Christ-exalting doctrine of the great creeds."
"This should have wide appeal and could be a huge blessing if it were studied and discussed. Fastidious patristics will love it--it is about orthodoxy and the apostolic faith, and those who wish that evangelicals were more deeply rooted will find this useful, and liberal Protestants who are in need of perhaps insight from both will, also, find this really helpful. There is a bit of an emphasis, too, on just how the Creed's truths can be lived out--even in worship and mission and pastoral work. . . . This work brings a large amount of insight about historic faith of the 4th century to the 21st century."
